After installing KDS and MQX 4.1 I noticed two things:
a) No demo projects as were available using CW 10.5
b) No option to create an MQX project in KDS
Am I missing something? How can I integrate MQX into KDS?
Official support of KDS in MQX is planned in MQX 4.2 & MQX 5.0 coming later this year.
At that time MQX plug-ins for KDS (e.g. Task Aware Debug & New Project Wizard) will be available. Also, MQX project files for all libraries and examples will be available for KDS.
In the meantime, we will make available project examples for at least a single MQX supported platform (for the libraries and at least one example application) that can be built with KDS. This will serve as a guide to anyone who wants to start working with MQX in KDS. Please note, however, this will be early project files for early adopters and won’t be as rigorously tested as the official MQX releases are.
For MQX + KSDK, the MQX kernel is available today to be used with Kinetis SDK 1.0 beta. This is provided in the MQX RTOS add-on package for KSDK.
At the time of the next release of KSDK (1.0 GA), more MQX features are planned to be available including RTCS, MFS, and other components. This MQX package that leverages KSDK will be known as MQX 5.0. The first release is likely to be considered in beta state.
I have the same problem. I installed KDS and MQX 4.1 but I don't see any MQX plug-in in KDS. It also missed MQX project creation capabilities!
MQX has not released yet projects and plugins for KDS.
MQX 4.1 does not have KDS project files included. Going forward, MQX will be part (or integrated) in the Kinetis SDK. The MQX team is working on plugins and project files for KDS, but this has not been released yet.
Thanks for the update, Erich.
First let me say that i really like the latest KDS - seems to work well so far for me. The new UI for processor expert, while not functionally very different from the one in code warrior, is much more pleasant to work with...
Can you expand on the planned MQX integration with KDS?
Specifically, i am hoping that it will be integrated in a way similar to how you've already integrated MQX-Lite with processor expert. I really like that i can add/name tasks and select which components should be included (like lightweight events, mutexes, lightweight timers etc...).
This would be especially useful if you also included the existing MQX device stacks for networking, USB device/host etc...
Finally, will any of this MQX integration be included in the final 1.1 GA release that is expected later this summer?
MQX sdk integration was talked about at ftf with all the caveats that it is beta and subject to change; I was hoping some of the details were in the slides but I did not see what I was remembering:
The ksdk has a OS abstraction layer that supports bare-metal, MQX, FREERTOS, and one or two others (this is talked about in the pdf I linked). the GA release may have the MQX kernal and use the middleware services provided by the SDK (example: the SDK USB stack is derived from the MQX and baremetal stacks). The design was moving towards a decoupled version of MQX that leveraged the SDK code.
Erick did a FTF presentation on FreeRTOS integration with the SDK.
Those links really helped, thanks!
Erich, I understand that this will be released soon. But, for now, is there a way to manually do this intergration? I mean, integrate "KDS + KSDK + MQX" or "CW + KSDK + MQX"???
Thank you macl!
Check out section 3 Using MQX Makefiles with Eclipse in the MQX_GNU_Getting_Started.pdf document in the /doc/tools/gnu folder in MQX RTOS files (C:\Freescale\Freescale_MQX_4_1\doc\tools\gnu).
This section describes creating a new project in Eclipse and using the existing make files to build MQX libraries and examples.
As we know the MQX4.1.1 has include support for KDS, and i want know dose the MQX4.1.1 is beta release ? and dose the BSPCloningWizard will be available in MQX4.2?
